South Dakota college golfers treated after Iowa collision

WESTFIELD, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say members of a South Dakota college golf team were treated at a hospital after a collision between their van and a sport utility vehicle in northwest Iowa.

The Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office says the accident occurred around 6:30 p.m. Thursday about a mile (2 kilometers) north of Westfield on Iowa Highway 12. The sheriff’s office says the northbound SUV crossed the centerline and struck the oncoming van carrying the team from Mount Marty College in Yankton, South Dakota.

The SUV driver was taken to Mercy Medical Center in Sioux City, and all six people on the van were treated at a Hawarden hospital and released.

The names of those involved have not been released.

The college’s Andy Bernatow (bur-NAH’-toh) says the team was returning from a tournament in the area.
